Opening and changing roller shutter locks. In panel 1, the old roller shutter locks were unlocked and removed. Panel 2 shows how the original roller shutter lock looks like. A roller shutter lock consists of the lock, the metal casing and a pair of ‘arms’ extending from both sides. These attach the lock to the roller shutter itself.
In panels 3 and 4, the new locks had to be modified. This was because the rivets that attached the lock to the roller shutter did not fit properly. Panel 5 shows a newly modified lock, which is then fitted back onto the roller shutter in panel 6. The last panel finally shows how the new keys for the newly replaced locks look like.
In a nutshell, roller shutters are mostly found in hawker centres, neighbourhood shop units and warehouses in Singapore, to name a few. They protect items from weather damage. When used in tandem with locks, they protect goods from being stolen or defaced.
